Found May 25, 2013 on Around The Rink:
Tuukka Rask (courtesy of ESPN.com) One game after a horrible gaff, Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask made up for it in Game 5. Rask stopped New York Rangers forward Ryan Callahan on a breakaway to preserve a 2-1 lead in the third period of Saturday’s game in Boston. With the puck in the defensive zone, Carl Hagelin blocked a shot from Bruins forward Brad Marchand, and whisked a pass up ice to Callahan. But Rask stood strong and stonewalled Callahan who attempted to score on the backhand that was supposed to go over Rask’s sliding shoulder, but Rask was able to get his blocker on the puck to send it sailing over the glass. The Bruins won the game 3-1 and will meet the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals

Tuukka Rask slips, falls, allows terrible goal
